“It is with great pleasure that I welcome Mark Calabria on board. His remarkable industry experience as Director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency and as Chief Economist at The White House, and his deep knowledge and experience in residential and consumer finance regulation and markets, as well as prudential regulation and supervision, will be an invaluable asset to our firm and our clients,” said Peter Selman, Chairman and Managing Partner of SEDA Experts.
Dr. Mark Calabria served as the Director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency, as a member of the Financial Stability Oversight Council, and as a senior member of the staff of the United States Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs. He is an expert in residential and consumer finance regulation and markets, as well as the prudential regulation and supervision of systemically important financial institutions.
Prior to his heading FHFA, Calabria served as Chief Economist to U.S. Vice President. In that role, he led the Vice President’s work on taxes, trade, labor, financial services, manufacturing and general economic issues, including serving as a key member of the team that enacted the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, and the United States-Mexico-Canada trade agreement.
